The carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) means that countries which fail to green their industries will soon face a … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Thank you , Putin. Not only have you solidified NATO, established then sovereign Nation status of Ukraine, you’ve force the EU to establish Green Import Tariff’s, effective 10/23. What are they, a Carbon tax on products produced by old technologies, using Carbon emissions. Those products subject to a Carbon Tax are Iron, cement, fertilizer, aluminum and electricity.

http://www.theguardian.com/media/2022/nov/28/media-groups-urge-us-drop-julian-assange-charges The Obama-Biden administration, in office during the WikiLeaks publication in 2010, refrained from indicting Assange, explaining that they would have had to indict journalists from major news outlets too. Their position placed a premium on press freedom, despite its uncomfortable consequences. Under Donald Trump however, the position changed. The DoJ relied on an old … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Publishing companies are naively blocking punishment of Julian Assange based on his original investigative reporting. However, when Wikileaks and Julian Assange, worked cooperatively with the Russian Internet Agency and Donald Trumps campaign to make private emails and data gained illegally by The Russian Internet Agency, they crossed a red line. Wikileaks was essentially aiding a crime. The Russian Internet Agency, infiltrated the RNC and the DNC and exposed sensitive polling data. The Russian Internet Agency stole data from Hillary Clinton and released 30,000 of her emails for use in conspiracy ads and for use by the Trump Campaign Team. Would you want someone, or entity or foreign entity to gain access to your personal data and use it against you? Is this any different from entering the DNC and stealing their papers for your campaign’s use and strategy. One set of data is on paper and the other data resides on the internet. What’s the difference?

The agency itself has said that three-quarters of factory farms discharge pollution, … More TheVoiceOfJoyce 30-50 yrs of planning have neutered our Regulatory Agencies. The EPA , fired 100’s of scientists under Trump. Clearly, small government is working for people who were used to drink clean water. Anywhere there are factory farms, the water is tainted. High levels of minerals and other toxins are causing algae blooms rendering the River water and ground water, unsafe for drinking or swimming. If you want to drink clean drinking water, don’t vote for TRUMPS GOP, they want Corporate self regulation. We the People have small government, hollowed out governing agencies & Corporate self regulation. Corporations work to sustain their profits. We the People, no longer get a living wage or clean water and clean air. Profits come first in this GOP created Utopia. Vote GOP and watch our limited water resources, evaporate!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/09/22/midterms-elections-social-media-civil-rights/ Through memos and meetings, the Change the Terms coalition for months had pleaded with Facebook parent Meta, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube to bolster the content moderation systems that it says allowed Trump’s baseless claims about election rigging to spread, setting the groundwork for the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to … More TheVoiceOfJoyce The representatives of truth and fairness should be concerned. The Internet is not neutral. There is an ultra conservative bias built into the system. The Social Media Platforms are neo liberal. ( no accountability, self regulating and support small government) Therefore, according to existing Law, they can’t change, their power over the data they collect and the content they allow, on their platforms, belongs to them and not us. Congressional misinformation makes them billions. All data that’s controversial, creates influencers and those influencers attract millions, and make millions for themselves, and the Social Media Platforms they choose. You want to preserve our Democracy? You want to stop the Culture Wars? Change Section 230 of the Communication Law and write new Laws, regulating what can be transmitted on Social Media platforms. The worst offender is Meta/Facebook. They won’t willingly relent. Remember Facebook partnered with Cambridge Analytica to understand Facebook’s role in Election & voting decision making. Cambridge Analytica funding came from the Mercer’s, conservative leaning billionaires. TikTok is now removing political parties, politicians and campaigns from their site. Twitter is also stopping political ads somewhat. The others? Only Laws will restore ourDemocracy and decrease culture Wars. Do you want to hear the truth or lies? Do you want Democracy or Corporations to decide what information you see? The Social Media business model , wants no regulation and unlimited power. They have more power and money than anyone else. Do you want them, to make life choices for us? Or, Do you want to be an informed citizen and make your own decisions? We can have a say in Social Media content, by writing Laws to protect our privacy and our Democracy.

It has long been alleged, that Google sells our data to 3 rd Parties and those 3 rd Parties pay revenue to Google. Based on our behavior, we see “ Google ads selectively prioritized. These ads, may not be ads originating from the UK or the Netherlands. The Google ad roster may not benefit local newspapers or small businesses from the region of search. Those newspapers and businesses have been deemed by the UK & The Netherlands to have been harmed. The government’s are suing Google under the new Regulations, seeking damages of $25 Billion. What do you think? Do you think Google prioritizes their ads? Does this constitute a violation of anti trust rules? Should Google’s AI data ordering be transparent and accountable, allowing for competition?
